Four Ingredient Fat Free Stir Fry Sauce

I make some variation of stir fry roughly once a week. Its healthy, so good, and can be accomplished in about 5 minutes flat (especially if you’re willing to invest in some Trader Joe’s frozen stir-fry veggie mixes for the occasional emergency).

I am, by the way, totally aware that stir fry typically involves flash-frying the vegetables in a hot pan with oil, so the title of this is slightly misleading. And I’ll admit, a heavier sauce with sesame oil or peanuts really can’t be beat.

BUT! If I’m looking for an uber-healthy dinner option that doesn’t taste like Fiber One after a long weekend of eating and drinking (ahem), I’ll make this pseudo-stir fry and happily dig into a spicy, sweet and salty bowl of vegetables over brown rice. I steam my vegetables of choice until they’re perfectly crispy and juicy, then top with this sauce.

Four Ingredient Fat-Free Stir Fry Sauce

  • Honey or agave nectar
  • Reduced sodium soy sauce
  • Chili garlic sauce
  • Sesame seeds*

Combine 1 part honey to two parts soy sauce. Add chili garlic sauce to taste, then mix and add sesame seeds.

*Sesame seeds add a nominal amount of fat: 1.5 grams in 1 tsp. Omit if you’d like!
